    • Saving space
      To address packaging constraints in off-highway equipment, engineers developed a fuel vaporizer catalyst that makes for a more compact aftertreatment system.
    • Steering toward safety
      A look at new technology concepts to overcome design issues inherent in adapting steering angle for heavy-duty applications.
    • A fluid performance
      Researchers have developed a procedure to measure a fluid's effect on the degree to which mechanical power is efficiently converted to hydraulic power in pumps typical of off-highway applications.
